Egypt has expressed readiness to benefit Somalia with its logistic and technical expertise in the fields of customs and tax policies.
The Finance Ministry said in a statement that Minister Hany Qadry Dimian, meeting with his Somali counterpart Hussein Abdi Halane, said Egypt was eager to support Somalia’s government and people on all levels.
The minister added that Egypt’s tax legislation addresses world taxation systems, and is highly appreciated by specialized world bodies. He pointed out that a number of Arab states had relied on Egyptian taxing laws in formulating their own legislation.
Dimian also welcomed participation by Somalia’s tax and customs authorities’ officers in training programs run by their Egyptian counterparts.
